The homestead was built circa 1821 by Quakers who supported the anti-slavery movement. The home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Network to Freedom, contains a "hidden stairway" used to spirit escaping slaves from the basement to a second-floor hiding place. Also featured is an attic beehive, drawer for false teeth and pie oven. The property includes seven outbuildings from the 19th and 20th centuries. The home is open to the public for tours and also is a favorite of schoolchildren. An Underground Railroad re-enactment occurs annually.
